Katarina Witt, six times European champion, has been running up and down the Brondby Stadium steps in Copenhagen in training for the European Championships apparently unconcerned by the possibility of being the victim of an attack like the one on Nancy Kerrigan. It was all show. 'It's unbelievable that this attack was organised and was not by a crazy person,' she said. 'I feel it even more because of this.' Witt begins her campaign tomorrow in the qualifying round and will 'play safe' she said in order to reach the final 30 who will compete from Friday. She will exclude tomorrow the triple loop, a jump she managed in training session on Friday.
